Honeoye Falls Approves Change To Allow Drive-Thru

The Village of Honeoye Falls has approved a zoning change to allow drive-thru restaurants in the town. The board voted on the measure during a meeting Monday night.

By a vote of 3-1, the village board approved the change that will only allow up to two drive-thru restaurants to move onto West Main Street. The area is already zoned for general commercial businesses.

Mayor Rick Milne tells Time Warner Cable News this has been talked about for years. He brought the proposal to the table again after Dunkin' Donuts had interest in moving into the village, but with the former zoning regulations it couldn't.

The mayor says it's good for the village, but some residents are concerned it will change the small-town character of the village.

Milne says the area that is affected by the change is the general commercial district, which was set up for this kind of use.
